Language: English and French, with English subtitles
A look inside Paris’s Crazy Horse cabaret—the most famous nude dance show in the world. Master documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman explores this mythic and colorful place dedicated to women and founded in 1951 by Alain Bernardin. Over the years it has become the Parisian nightlife “must” for visitors, ranking alongside the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. Wiseman’s impeccable eye finds the Crazy Horse a uniquely French showcase, with an emphasis on elegance, perfectionism, and a grueling schedule. The film shows us the rehearsals for, and the unveiling of, the brand new show Désir, created by the renowned French choreographer Philippe Decouflé.
